PLANS to open the world's first drive-through marijuana outlets in Holland have enraged German officials.

The government claim their youth will break for the border in even greater numbers to buy the drugs still outlawed in their homeland.

But city fathers in Dutch border town Venlo argue it will curb the weekend excursions of 5000-plus German youths.

Venlo thinks Germans will be too paranoid to use drive-throughs for fear of being spied on by police and having registration numbers noted.

Venlo council chiefs say two drive-throughs on the outskirts of the city - dubbed McDope - will be run like fast food chains. Motorists can speak into a mic, drive to the window, pay and collect.

The outlets are expected to sell pounds 1million in cannabis in the first six months.
